Well, the final outcome of this issue has been a full refund from the dealer.
I have found that the DP alarm had been sitting for about two years in parts room. The issue seems to be, as it is not confirmed by Ducati, that the unit is not compatible with the newer ABS models. The part number is the same on the old unit as it is on the new unit; however the pictures that show up for a new alarm do not match that of the older unit.
The good thing for me is that I am moving into a house that has a garage, so I do not see the need for an alarm system.
